Organic products are the ones that are produced with certain standards. These standards are defined by the local and national legislation, so that the commercial use of the term 'organic' be controlled by the government or the state. The purpose of this legislation is to protect the environment and to increase the fertility of the soil and its organic activity. In addition, the creation of the appropriate conditions for keeping the codependent relationship between three factors (the soil and the plants, the plants and the animals and the animals with the soil) is also protected by the legislation, without needing to use production factors of external source.
The quality is also maintained by the fact that organic farming rejects the use of synthetic chemicals such as synthetic herbicides, fertilizers, pesticides and genetically modified organisms (G.M.O).
More specifically, organic farmers are based on methods such as crop rotation (rotating the crops for harvest), crop remains, fallow land, mechanized farming (preservation of the productivity of the soil), enriching the soil with nutritious substances, as well as the control of weeds, parasites and insects.
